NCC has been commissioned by Linxon to construct new power substation buildings for Vartan Station in the Stockholm Royal Seaport in Norra Djurgardsstaden district of Stockholm. The transaction is a turnkey contract for Linxon, with Ellevio as the end customer. The order value of NCC’s share of the contract is approximately SEK 400 million. NCC will be responsible for the construction of two new buildings with a total area of approximately 18,000 square meters. The buildings will be constructed on the existing site in Hjorthagen and this will be done in phases as the existing substation is successively demolished. When the buildings are completed, Linxon will install two switchgears for both 110 kilovolts and 220 kilovolts. Construction is scheduled to start in the summer of 2021 and the construction time is estimated at approximately five years.
Linxon has previously secured contracts for electrical AC substations for the Skanstull and Barkarby areas as part of upgrading the electrical grid in the Stockholm region. It is now the turn of Ellevio’s Värta facility, which needs to increase its capacity to meet the electricity supply requirements of tomorrow.
